A very good movie

4 years, 7 months ago at Jan 11 12:15
I have noticed that this movie never got much love and it is pretty much forgotten nowadays but I think it is actually quite a shame. To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen it (in fact, I’m pretty sure I saw it in the movie theater when it was released) but I should definitely check it out again when I have the opportunity.

Brilliant To The Awful - Movies Watched In 2015 (233 movies items)

"Summer of Sam is a drama focusing on the lives a group of disaffected young people in the Italian American community of the Bronx, set against the backdrop of the sweltering summer of '77 and the fear created by David Berkowitz's murder spree. The main element of the movie is not whether the police will catch the Son of Sam and when he will strike next, this is merely the scenery. The important plot elements of the movie are John Leguizamo's marital problems with Mira Sorvino, and Adrien Brody's"

"The Bronx represents in Spike Lee’s ominous reconstruction of the 1977 David Berkowitz serial-killer panic, taking root in a city plagued by blackouts, racial tensions and—vividly rendered—a sweltering, inescapable heat. Lee imparts a hometown boy’s feel for pizzerias, hair salons and punk clubs (including the departed CBGB).—Joshua Rothkopf"

A very good movie

“I have noticed that this movie never got much love and it is pretty much forgotten nowadays but I think it is actually quite a shame. To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen it (in fact, I’m pretty sure I saw it in the movie theater when it was released) but I should definitely check it out again when I have the opportunity. Anyway, in my opinion, I think it is in fact one of the best serial killer movies ever made. Personally, I always had some mixed feelings about the genre because most of them, even the classics like ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ or ‘Seven’, are seriously over-the-tope and, therefore, I always find difficult to really connect with those movies. This movie was however an exception. Of course, it was based on a true story but, above all, I thought it wa” read more

" Note : It is one of my favorite serial killer movie. Most of them are usually over-the-top and it is really annoying but not this one. It is based on a true story and very realistic. Better than : Jungle fever, Mo'better blues (those are ok movies though) "
